I created my black and white card with a Valentine's Day theme by using the new Hearts Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up. This also gave me a shape card for the LNS Shaped Cards challenge.
To make my card more complex, I tried to add lots of different textures. I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create a debossed look on the solid black scallop heart. I used the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to deboss the white heart. Then, I traced the lines with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. The red Glimmer paper heart adds another texture and dimension since I attached it with a Stampin' Dimensional. Finally, I mounted my sentiment on Basic Black paper that had been embossed using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It is simple but elegant.
